Hi there,

your problem is most likely the front panel itself. can you see if the water is coming from the front? this is quite a simple machine and there isn't many places the water would come from other then the hoses or the front panel under the door.

Won't drain at end of cycle. water still inside bottom of machine

you have something in the pump or pump is burned out. find the pump: take the back off the wwasher, follow two 1 inch(or about that size) hoses, attached to these hoses is a pump. now, dissconnect hoses ( have towels and buckets ready to catch water) and remove cover on pump. Inpect inside fins to see if there is something keeping them from not moving.

During drain cycle it partially drains through hose but water pours out of the bottom front

It sounds like the drain hose may have a break in it. Use a Phillips screwdriver or a 1/4" nut driver and remove the lower toe panel that sits back and low to the ground in front. With that panel off fill the dishwasher then push cancel and see where the water is coming from. Let me know which hose it is and I can get you a part number if you wish

Dishwasher will wash but will not pump water out

There is a diverter valve that determines whether the pump re-circulates the water during the wash cycle or pumps it out to the drain during the drain cycle.

The valve is probably defective or possibly there are food particles which are preventing it from closing properly. The valve is usually built into the pump and has an electrical solenoid to open and close it. Check that the mechanical mechanism works freely and, with the bottom panel removed, check to see if the valve opens and closes when the dishwasher swtiches between the wash and drain cycle.

To check for food particles, you will probably have to disassemble the intake hoses from the pump and see if you can feel inside the pump intake for lodged food particles on the valve seal.

Checked drains and hoses and seems okay. drains

Have you checked the float switch inside the dishwasher. It is usually covered by a plastic piece that you have to unscrew, then after you take that off, the float will just be sitting inside of a small hole. Make sure that it is clean of all debris and build up. You can check how well it works by messing with it. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher will drain only some of the water---help

several possibilities...
1. could be "short cycling" during the drain cycle
2. could be food or waste buildup in the strainer in the bottom of the unit not allowing water to filter down quick enough
3. could be a bad pump running at abnormal speed
4. could be a blockage in the drain hose niot allowing all the water to get pumped out.
5. you have no air-gap installed which means the drain hose it tapped directly into your sink drain insted of thru an air inlet that you can see atop your sink usually where the sprayer would sit but looks like a chrome cap with a hole in the side

Hard to tell which might be the problem unless your willing to get under your sink and unit and investigate things by disassebling the hoses, etc.

I had the same problem with my machine - ie lots of water coming out front about two thirds of the way through the cycle - engineer (local and very reliable) knew as soon as he came in that I had started bying Powerball 5 dishwasher tablets - they produce too much foam (try opening the door during the cycle and see the amount of foam) and it therefore comes out of the overflow parts on the door. I tried Magnum 5 and got the same problem. Now I stick to either Asda's own basic (not the 5) or I buy the Magnum ones and cut them in half. Has never leaked since!
